North America

The Maple Leaf 
Pearson Pennant 

Official Name: Canada
Ideology: Liberal Democracy

The Dominion of Canada became increasingly reliant on the United States of America after the United Kingdom capitulated to Germany. By 1962, the nation is a liberal democracy and an OFN member state.

  • The Exile: A number of British political figures and ideologues found exile in Canada following World War 2. Among them are Winston Churchill and Oswald Mosley, though the latter's described as a drunkard having lost all credibility.
  • The Remnant: Under Queen Elizabeth II, Canada's the de facto heart of the "legitimate" Commonwealth, in contrast to the Nazi-collaborationist Kingdom of England.
  • Western Terrorists: Québécois terrorist groups, from the Marxist Front de libération du Québec to the Fascist Front de l'Unité Nationale du Québec, have long been a thorn in the side of the Canadian government.

Lester B. Pearson
Party: Liberal Party of Canada
Ideology: Liberal Democracy

  • Landslide Election: In the 1958 elections, Pearson led the Liberals to power after a landslide victory against the Conservatives.

Pierre Trudeau
Party: Liberal Party of Canada
Ideology: Liberal Democracy

Tommy Douglas
Party: Co-operative Commonwealth Federation
Ideology: Social Democracy

  • Dark Secret: In 1930, Douglas obtained his master's degree by writing a thesis which endorsed eugenics. However, he abandoned his support of the practice following an official visit to Nazi Germany in 1936, and seeing their eugenics program in action. He even blocked legislation to adopt eugenics in Saskatchewan during his tenure as premier. Nevertheless, he managed to become a beloved figure in Canadian politics, but must still strive to at least partially keep his eccentric past, particularly this thesis, under wraps.
  • Good Shepherd: When studying theology in the Baptist Brandon College, Douglas subscribed to the Social Gospel Movement, which taught that Christianity was as concerned with social justice as it was with salvation. This led him to pursue a political career and advocate for numerous social programs, particularly universal health care.

Official Name: Republic of Cuba
Ideology: Authoritarian Socialism

A socialist state headed by US ally Fidel Castro.

Fidel Castro
Ideology: Authoritarian Socialism

  • Chummy Commies: Despite quickly drifting to authoritarian socialism as in real life, Fidel is noted to be a strong ally of the United States, and still enjoys the backing of the CIA.
  • Cigar Chomper: As always, Fidel's portrait depicts him smoking a cigar.
  • Enemy Mine: A left-wing nationalist and authoritarian socialist like Fidel certainly doesn't seem like someone who would work with a capitalist USA. But in the world of TNO, where fascism is the dominant ideology, his fervently anti-fascist Cuba makes a great ally for the United States.
  • Everyone Has Standards: While he is an authoritarian socialist as per our timeline, a quote on the loading screen from Castro shows that he finds the Nazis' anti-Semitism a disgusting form of scapegoating. This is Truth in Television, as Castro in our world, while anti-Israel, was rather critical of anti-Semitism and Holocaust denial.
  • Irony: In real life, Fidel was known for his proud opposition to the American government, and was the target of multiple CIA-sponsored anti-communist operations, including the famous Bay of Pigs Invasion. In TNO, Fidel is a close ally of the United States and is directly sponsored by the CIA, who provided his M-26-7 guerrilla movement with arms, backed his revolution and even put him into power. This has some truth in it, as the CIA did send an agent to help advise M-26-7 and funded their activities in real life.


South America


Official Name: Co-operative Republic of Guyana
Ideology: Despotism

A US puppet state occupying the former colonies of British Guyana, Dutch Guyana, and French Guiana.

  • Puppet State: Guyana is lead by a pro-United States client government.
  • Small Role, Big Impact: Guyana's only role in the story is to be invaded by the United States, said invasion being the reason why John F. Kennedy is assassinated by a Guyanese nationalist.

Forbes Burnham

Ideology: Authoritarian Democracy, Despotism
